92Y Video: From the Poetry Center Archive: Jennifer Egan and Jeffrey Eugenides

“I feel like I’ve made it to Carnegie Hall.” So said Jennifer Egan from our stage on Monday night, her first time reading at the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center. She read the first chapter of A Visit from the Goon Squad, which won this year’s Pulitzer Prize. Joining her was another Pulitzer winner, Jeffrey Eugenides, who read from The Marriage Plot. Today’s video features excerpts from both of their readings, as well as a few moments from the Q-and-A that followed.

For more coverage of the sold-out show, check out The Wall Street Journal‘s report.

Up next in the Main Reading Series is Sapphire and Sherman Alexie on November 21
